Rating: 4.9/5 4.89/5 Based on 9 Reviews

Attend this Introduction to Service-Oriented Architecture training course and learn to support the modern applications that your organization relies on by gaining the skills to design, build, and maintain a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). In this SOA architecture training course, you learn how to create an effective, cloud-ready SOA by modeling, designing, and providing the specifications for services that merge the business and technical requirements of your organization. This course will advance you through introductory concepts to intermediate level best practices.

Key Features of this Introduction to Service-Oriented Architecture Training:

  • After-course instructor coaching benefit
  • Learning Tree end-of-course exam included
  • After-course computing sandbox included

You Will Learn How To:

  • Design and architect a modern SOA
  • Apply SOA design patterns to improve flexibility and maintainability
  • Model service operations and messages from business use cases
  • Facilitate integration and empower consumers

Service-Oriented Architecture Course Information

  • Pre-course Exercise

    • You will be asked to do about 2 hours of pre-course homework and present it in class.
  • Recommended Experience

    • Some involvement creating business applications
  • Who would benefit most from this training

    • This course is for any one involved in designing service oriented architectures: business analysts, project leads, system architects, and developers.
    • In this course we determine what services an organization requires and how those services should be designed and organized to support the needs of the organization and the service’s consumers. The course does not cover the business logic that would be developed to implement the services (instead see, course 577 (Java) or 2601 (.NET)).
  • About the software used

    • While REST-based applications are emphasized, the role for WSDL/SOAP services and queue-based services are also discussed. Additionally, Enterprise Architect, Professional Edition is used for SoaML modeling.

Service-Oriented Architecture Training FAQs

  • What is Service-Oriented Architecture?

    Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a software development approach in which applications use services available in the network. Services are provided to form applications through a communication call over the internet.

  • What software is used in this SOA training course?

    While REST-based applications are emphasized, the role for WSDL/SOAP services and queue-based services are also discussed. Additionally, Enterprise Architect, Professional Edition is used for SoaML modeling.
